DAWSON COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

The Dawson County Sheriff's Office has identified a suspect in the sexual assault that occurred on Tuesday, March 21.

The sheriff's office is asking for public help in locating 36-year-old Jose Guadalupe Pena.

Pena is described as a Hispanic male, about 5 foot 10 inches tall, weighing around 185 lbs with black hair and brown eyes.

The subject is possibly working in the surrounding areas and possibly still driving the white Ford van with red and yellow safety stripes on the two back doors.

If anyone sees or has any information on Pena's whereabouts, please contact your local authorities or the Dawson County Sheriff's Office at (806) 872-7560.

A woman called the sheriff's office on March 21 saying two men claiming to be utility workers said they needed to do a maintenance check - that's when the sexual assault happened, at a home just outside of the Lamesa city limits.

Deputies say the woman reported only one man came into the house and the other stayed in the van.

"He had checked the water heater like he said he was going to. Then apparently that's when the assault occurred. Prior to him leaving...the other subject had stayed in the van. Only one of them had got out of the van and went up to the door," Dawson County Sheriff Matt Hogg said.

The men were driving a white van with red and yellow reflective markings on the back doors, and no other markings, according to deputies.

The victim was taken to the hospital, treated and released.
